PCI-E slot causing artifacts ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
A week ago my sig card started artifacting out of nowhere at stock clocks and voltage.

So I upped the voltage slightly at stock settings to see if it gained stability, but that didn't work.

Yesterday I switched the card to a different slot, closer to he cpu and now it doesn't artifact at all when running 3dmark.

Defective mb PCI-E slot ?

Power might not have been connected properly or might have just needed to be reseated.

Could have been display connection also.

Swap it back in see if issue persists. If not, most likely it just needed to be reseated.

Also the top pciexpress slot(closest to the cpu) is usually the main slot so if you were running it in a secondary slot that could have been the issue the other slots tend to have less bandwith like x8 or x4 instead of x16.
